Winning in a globalized world through effective automation

High labor costs, stricter safety standards, and increasing competition have created an environment where only the agile can survive and thrive. Thanks to automation, many in the metal working industry have been rising to the occasion. Robotics allows for not only greater throughput at lower cost but can also make the workplace significantly safer. Correctly, implemented Robotics can vastly increase productivity and thereby greatly reduce relative total cost. For the metalworking industry, like so many others, robotics is the key to being competitive in a globalized world.

Why the metal industry needs to keep an eye on cobots

The advantages of the next generation of robotics

Safe

Cobots meet strict safety requirements that allow for their utilization in close proximity to people or even work directly with them as part of a hybrid process. This means that the robot can perform more human-like tasks or simply make a current human worker more efficient.

Easy to use

Thanks to this capacity for collaboration, companies in the metal industry do not need to completely rebuild their processes and lines around robots themselves. This means that previous investments in machinery can be partially or fully automated without massive changes to the production line or the deprecation recently purchased machinery.

Adaptable

Collaborative robots are in general much easier to program and repurpose than traditional industrial robots, allowing for much greater adaptability. Often, reprogramming a cobot perform a new task on a new line or a new batch is something that any operator can be trained to do. Cobots make factories more agile and responsive to market changes.
